LOS ANGELES—Attorney General Kamala D. Harris issued the following statement, following today’s announcement that the U.S. Supreme Court denied the United States’ petition for a rehearing in U.S. v. Texas, the case challenging President Obama’s immigration executive actions:

“I am disappointed that the Supreme Court has refused to rehear U.S. v. Texas, keeping President Obama’s common-sense immigration executive actions on hold indefinitely.  Millions of hard working immigrants—members of our communities who contribute to our economy—continue to face the threat of being torn from their families, exploited in the workplace, and demonized in our society.  Continued inaction from Congress and the Court undermines not only our core values of fairness and compassion, but also our nation’s economic prosperity and public safety.”
